Permit are loved and hated by fishermen the world over. There is no more a tricky species to catch on a fly than the permit. They form the pinnacle of the trilogy of grand slam flats fishing, with the other species being the bonefish and the tarpon. If you are wondering why they are so tough to catch just look at those eyes! In fish terms they are massive and they are located very close to their mouths. Any fly crossing their path is going to be closely scrutinised before more often than not being rejected. The key to permit fishing is finding a happy fish!
